On the 17th of September, the highly anticipated SmartAgriHubs Innovation Portal was launched. In a matter of days, hundreds of interested stakeholders signed up and have already been able to enjoy the added value provided by the Portal’s features. 

Following months of development and having taken on board the comments and needs for the Portal from stakeholders, the Innovation Portal is finally here.

The SmartAgriHubs Innovation Portal

The goal of the SmartAgriHubs Innovation Portal is to expand and better connect the network of key AgriTech stakeholders across Europe.

To that end, it serves a multifaceted purpose: it is a search engine, a one-stop-shop marketplace, a library, a training platform, a calendar, a network, discussion forum and matchmaking service. The Innovation Portal was developed by taking on board the needs of both the internal and external stakeholders of the SmartAgriHubs project.  These inputs were gathered and  translated into the structure and features of the portal. The result of the whole process is an Innovation Portal that is both extremely user-friendly and interactive. With a few clicks and search queries, a user can look for desired Competence Centres, SMEs, Digital Innovation Hubs, documents or trainings tackling a specific problem, presenting a  particular solution, and within a distinct sector or geographical region. The possibilities for filtering a search query  are  close to endless!
